Little Boy Pilot

Pilot has a swollen leg. After 3 visits to the vet and a lot of money it turns out it’s a tumor. Next we have to go see an Orthopedic Surgeon, that’s tomorrow. Can we afford this? No, we still need to find a way to get Manly Man a car.

The thing is, I can’t just let him go, he’s my baby boy. He’s turning 9 years old this summer. We’ve had both Aurora and Pilot since basically the beginning of our relationship, we’re a family. It’s been a rough time for us lately and he’s one of the very bright spots in our lives.

Every single day when I come home within minutes he jumps up on the sofa and into my lap. It’s one of my favorite times of day and washes all the crap of the day away.



He has a tumor on his leg and he’ll probably have it amputated. I’m incredibly sad about this but if we can save his life I want to, I can’t imagine a life without him. I know cats aren’t around forever but I want him as long as I can have him. I couldn’t live with watching him suffer but if we can help him and give him a great life still then that’s what I need to do.
